Jaguar XJ (2014)

Jaguar has revised the XJ for 2014, including the introduction of an Intelligent Stop/Start system.

All XJ’s will feature Intelligent Stop-Start system which shuts down the engine when you pause in traffic, such as at traffic lights, it designed to lower emissions and reduce fuel consumption.

There is a choice of £3.0-litre V6 diesel and supercharged petrol and two 5.0-litre V8 petrol engines� including the 550PS XJR which is capable of 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 174mph

Jaguar XJ Interior

The XJ’s interior has been enhanced, with the LWB model being available with two individual ‘airline style’ reclining seats which both feature cushion and squab adjustment, three massage programs - Wave/Rolling, Lumbar and Shoulder. Through the use of the front touchscreen, any one of the four electric seats can be selected and then fully controlled via the driver’s seat switches. The rear seats can be returned to their home position by the use of the touchscreen and driver’s memory buttons, and can also be programmed to return to their home position on rear door opening for ease of entry and exit.

There is an optional Rear Seat Entertainment package comprises two 10.2” high-resolution screens mounted on the back of the front seat headrests.

Jaguar XJ Exterior

There is a palette comprising 15 colours: Polaris White, Ebony, Ultimate Black, Stratus Grey, Lunar Grey, Rhodium Silver, Cashmere, Osmium Blue, Dark Sapphire, Caviar, Carnelian Red, Black Amethyst, Italian Racing Red, British Racing Green and Satellite Grey.

Model 2014 cars will feature soft closing door technology which ensures that the doors of the XJ are securely closed with minimum exertion and undue noise.

Jaguar XJ Meridian Reference Audio System

You can opt for the 1300W Meridian Reference Audio System - with 26 super premium speaker drive units which has been upgraded to reduce distortion and improve linearity.

The Meridia Reference Audio System incorporates two 80mm speakers and one 25mm tweeter set in the rear of the each of the front seats; this combined with the speaker drive unit upgrades delivers a concert-like experience for all vehicle occupants. The system also incorporates DEC, which is a progression of the successful Dynamic Volume Control (DVC). This utilises the microphones above each listening position to optimise the frequency response and level of the sound to compensate exactly for varying levels and types of noise registered.

Conversation Assist

Conversation Assist, which is only available with the Meridian� Reference Audio System, utilises a microphone above each seating position and digital audio processing technology to reinforce the occupant’s voice via the vehicle’s audio system. This makes it much easier for occupants to be heard clearly by the other occupants in the vehicle above any cabin noise.

Conversation Assist can be activated whenever the infotainment system is on, whether audio sources are actively playing through the audio system or not, but the feature will not be active when in a phone call or voice session.
